Passport to Research Futures programme

Pick-and-mix format to suit your needs

The programme is a based on a pick-and-mix format combining a small number of core components with a selection of optional activities. Once you join the programme you choose which elements you want to complete.

The programme is structured around 9 Units, each including one or more activities. There are a number of workshop-based activities within each of the 9 Units, of which 5 are core components.  These are:

  1. Programme Orientation Meeting
  2. Career Paths  for research staff workshop
  3. Career Planning and self-development workshop
  4. Diversity in the workplace online course
  5. Unconscious Bias online course

Participants are required to complete the 5 core components and then as many or as few of the remaining activities as they feel are relevant to their own needs.

A minimum of 6 other subunits are required to achieve the in-house certificate (in addition to the 5 core subunits).

A minimum of 7 'shaded' units (as indicated in the Programme Guide) are required to achieve the ILM development award certificate (in addition to the 5 core subunits).

The Passport to Research Futures programme guide AY 2018-19 (PDF, 1,358 KB) ‌ includes all Unit titles, individual activity titles and scheduled dates, plus links to the online booking system (PDMS) where available.
